Degerfors form and stats

Degerfors have played three Allsvenskan home games so far, perhaps enough to set expectations for the season. In that case, only 0 points from these matches could be a signal of rough times ahead. With Degerfors having lost three times in a row here, the pressure is increasing on the manager Holmberg.

A strong away win for Degerfors against GIF Sundsvall the last match, as Saidi (3) were on target. A very satisfying win for Degerfors against GIF Sundsvall last time out as a late comeback secured the victory after trailing 0-2. The win was secured through Saidi's goal in the 90th minute. What a game it was for Saidi when beating GIF Sundsvall, applying the finishing touch to three goals! The talented striker Saidi outperformed all others in that fixture and received a match rating of 9.42 out of 10. Saidi scored three goals and hit two key passes.

Preceding that match was a defeat to Elfsborg (0-6).

The bookmakers consider this a fairly even contest. One could say only the home advantage separates the teams. It could be relevant to look at how Degerfors have performed in matches similar to this (as small favourites). Our database has found five matches with the results: Won one, drawn one and lost three.

Degerfors have scored 1 goal here in 3 league matches, a depressing statistic.

Helsingborg form and stats

As the visiting team matches, Helsingborg have produced an overall stat of 0-1-3 so far.

The manager Lennartsson was unhappy after their last game, played at their home stadium Olympia. Helsingborg suffered a 0-1 loss to Norrköping (placed 10th). Midfielder Ejupi was the best performer of that match, with a rating of 7.42. Ejupi dribled past the opponent 1 of 1 times and had 45 successful passes (of 52 total).

Ahead of that match was the away draw versus Djurgården that ended 2-2.
